It's good to see a smartly made film full of lots of interesting ideas. It's a shame then, when none of the ideas feel fully explored and the end result feels like an unsatisfying episode of Black Mirror. The eventual outcome felt obvious to me very early on, although I don't think the film is predictably written, my mind just happened to see the same path through the labyrinth of ideas that are thrown out there. It's also another film which has a fantastic ending but 5 minutes before the end of the film, I'd have loved to have seen the credits after a door slid closed.
